I'm the sort of person who likes/needs to look after people. When I'm with someone who's unwell physically or mentally; or if I see someone who I feel is lonely; I have a deep-rooted yearning to 'fix' them. Even in my profile I've put 'fixer' as my occupation
For about the last 6 months I've really stopped and started down the path of looking after me. That could be anything from the obvious of having a pampering treatment like a massage to simply allowing myself to not do something that I feel I should be doing. But bloody hell it's hard!
How kind to yourself are you? Do you spoil yourself at all? Do you feel guilty when you do or do you not give a fuck? Were you once bad at looking after yourself but are now an expert? Or were you once good but are now bad? What's changed or helped you? Are men and women different at looking after themselves?
